Hi Bev and Lynette, I'm Jean and I work for Health Education England. I'm really looking forward to the event as I am passionate about nursing and promoting nursing as a great career where you can make a real difference in so many ways. I'm also a school governor so it would be great to learn more about how we can encourage young people to aspire to be the nurses of the next generation (so I have someone to look after me when I'm old!)

I am keen to show the huge variety of opportunities a career in nursing brings as well as the personal rewards.
